Are you living your life?

This video really hit home, this guy spills the truth on how people are not living a fullfilling life, just being trapped in the 9-5 system like robots. Basically you need to take matter in your own hands to see happiness, and to live a life you dreamed of.

    Great video...It is true that most people are trapped in a 9-5 system....however, I also feel that people should embrace their job, learn to love it, enjoy the spirit of giving, serving and build a strong friendship with those they work with.

    When I once worked 9-5, I hated it... but I find that now I do not have a schedule or work routine, I wished that I had that structure... to each their own but people love to complain about things... the key is to learn to be happy with who you are, what you do and embrace the now... because now is all we have.

      Well said, my friend. Bloom where you are planted, but don't forget to keep on reaching for your dreams.

      There are three phases that a human should undergo. Those are
      “working,””saving,”and “investing. That video might say the fact that we are like
      dogs waiting to be fed and controlled like a robot, but we should remember that
      what we are now is the result of our DECISION yesterday.

      If you are working 9-5, that’s your choice. Otherwise, if you’re a person who wants to have a time-
      freedom, go to business where you can “LEVERAGE.”We shouldn’t forget that we are
      the ones who create DECISIONS in order to not to be regretful as ENDING TIME
      approaches. :-D

    Very good video. Ive already seen it a few days ago.

    But its full of truths. I am currently working 9-5, but it does help me because I can built something one time and then lay back.

    I think thats a pretty good tactic, work hard, then enjoy

    • Hi Mike,
      Short and very powerful video presentation. The topic of regrets before dying is as true a testimony you can get to live by. These folks had nothing to gain or lose at the point they were interviewed. I will take those five regrets to heart and act accordingly to release the potential of those late in life damaging feelings.

      Thanks for the reminder of what's important to me.
      All the best.

    Yeah that is amazing.

    3 years ago I had the courage to quit 9-5 and I was terrified. I have kids, mortgage, the whole bit.

    This morning I hung out at the water. Went to the gym mid day. Worked on a painting in the afternoon. Tonight I will work on my next song for my online business, a free royalty free music site. This week I go into the city for acting class.

    In between I do a bit of "mind rent" work.

    I am still nervous about paying my bills this month.

    But today was a blessed day and I feel real peace sitting here at sunset.

    One thing is for sure, I won't have those regrets.

  • A high percentage of Americans (yes, I'm american) do the same daily grind/routine, are self-centered, and in my opinion "quite far" from living their lives to the fullest lol.

    Most people live the 9-5 grind like robots because they lack knowledge. They don't know any better. This video should be an eye opener for them. Share guys

    Cheers,

    Great video! Most people are aware that they are in the 9-5 system but don't take the risk to do anything about it to change that.

    The video video was amazing!
    Don't let someone/something programmed yourself to work on a 9-5 system.
    Do things that you really want to do. Happiness is a choice within you and JUST YOU!

    A great video Mike and exactly what most warriors need in order to get motivated.

    You can also apply the ''Laws of Attraction'' to this great video. LOA - ANYTHING one ASKS for/wants or needs may be accomplished by BELIEVING that one will RECEIVE that outcome, repeatedly thinking about it, and maintaining positive emotional states to "attract" it. POSITIVE THINKING and visualizing the money, image of property, image of relationship you want etc!

    Thanks for the video.

    It's an eye opener.

    But life is always a choice.

    Some people who have 9-5 jobs actually love them---the structure of that kind of life.

    Some people want more, do they find ways to discover the life that they want to lead.

    The first part of the video, and the written messages are on point.

    The idea, however, that your happiness is paramount, I absolutely disapprove (bring the flack!).

    It is contributing the most that we can that is the most important thing.

    Of the people that most others tend to admire - high achievers, billionaires, etc - many have written that they did not go out seeking happiness. That was a by-product of what they did. Happiness, as a feeling, is only conditional upon whether we want to feel happy or not. Ask Viktor Frankl.

    There is that common denominator, however, of nearly all high achievers - excluding the fraudsters and swindlers (and arguably pro athletes) - they contribute the most to society.

    This is really good video. However, some people are not cut out for self employement or business. Its really hard to be your own boss.
